The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam is from a famous “Rice Water” line from the brand “The Face Shop”. Rice extract and Rice Water is said to provide skin brightening and skin moisturizing benefit. Many Korean Brands have dedicated line to Rice as a sacred ingredient. So, I was also fascinated by its benefit and bought the product without any research or review, and ended regretting! 😑
The first impression was great! I did enjoy it for first 3-4 days before the epic disaster took place. What Happened? Read on… to know more!! Seriously! what was I thinking while purchasing it!! 😕😣
The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam is suitable for Combination skin and Oily skin but with no acne issue or sensitivity issue. Why? Read Along!!
Not Suitable for:
The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam in not suitable for Dry Skin or for acne prone skin or sensitive skin.
This cleanser was so drying for my dry skin, that it irritated the skin.
Ingredients List and CosDNA Analysis:
For the hype and price, it contains all ordinary ingredient, except rice extract and Rice bran Oil, and these marketed ingredients are not on the top of the list! Too bad!! 😒 From Cosdna Analysis, it does contain quite a lot skin irritating ingredients. The two things I am not very happy about is the SLS and heavy fragrance! The fragrance is not bad, but it’s way too strong!
How to use:
The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam can be used as a second step cleanser in double cleansing method and can also be used alone to remove makeup.
It was too strong for me, so I ended up using it as a Body Wash!! 🙃 Foams up really well!!
The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam comes in regular easy to squeeze tube type packaging with flip on cap! The cap is stiff enough, making it travel friendly! Should I at least be happy about the pakaging? 😕😭

Quantity: The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam comes in 150 ml quantity.

The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam has very creamy consistency, and feels very smooth and exactly like a face cream. Just like the name, it foams up a lot, gives really dense and thick lather. The foam does feel rich and smooth than regular cleansing foam.
The fragrance is good but is way too strong for a face cleanser. Even the body cleanser and soaps don’t have such strong fragrance! ! In fact, the box where I stored the empty tube of this cleanser is filled up with its strong fragrance. I do enjoy a cleanser with mild to moderate fragrance, but this is a NO!! NO!!
The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam reminded me a lot of Ponds White Beauty Face Wash! The consistency is quite similar! But even though the Ponds face wash is a drugstore cleanser, it didn’t react on my skin nor dried out my skin so badly!
I finished The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam as a body cleanser and I really did enjoy it that way. (Unless a product is severely reacting on skin, try using it on body before throwing it away!! But if the reaction was severe, just discard it without second thoughts!!). Very little quantity was required, foamed up really well and rinsed off easily without leaving soapy residue but felt drying!! So, accordingly is my opinion and is a final one:
- Rich Lather.
- Removes Makeup.
- Doesn’t leave residue.
- Irritated skin badly, acne break out. My skin is not that acne prone.
- Too drying for my dry skin.
- Strong Fragrance. Trust me it’s really strong.
- Contains SLS.
- Not at all cost effective for what it does and what it contains.
Do I recommend it? No! Not at all!! If you are planning to have SLS in a product, better purchase drugstore products at a cheaper price.
Will I repurchase? No! Never! 😡
The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam is not at all worth the money! It’s a NO NO for Normal to Dry Skin and will not recommend to other skin types as well. With so much of fragrance and SLS in it, why take the pain of paying more and seeking it from international website!! 😑😵
